Chances are that if you're on my site you already knew this. The people at PETA are absolutely stark-raving, foaming-at-the-mouth, clinically insane. It's probably due to a lack of protein. If this video doesn't make you just shake your head in disgust, there can't be much that will.
The day after the marathon I took a drive to through the Uintah mountains to Mirror Lake. To say I was hiking would be exaggerating, but I did walk the trails and get some nice pictures.
This year, old age finally took its toll on my mind. I ran the Deseret News Marathon (my first). All I could think for the last three miles was, "this is the stupidest thing I've ever done in my life!" When I finally saw the 26 mile marker though, I
nearly cried gave a manly shout and doubled my speed. The feeling of acomplishment was incredible. I'd recommend the experience to anyone that isn't a chain smoker.
Growing up I was always, or for at least as far back as I can remember, a very self conscious kid. I don't know why. It wasn't something I obsessed over, I just figured other kids were cooler and better looking, so I was lucky if anyone wanted to hang out with me.
